    We are a family of 12 headed on the 7 night western cruise--would you recommend port activities or waiting and seeing?

    Ahoy, Louise!

    Wow! You are just a few days away from setting sail for a Very Merrytime Cruise aboard Disney Cruise Line with your family. I'm sure your crew is about to burst with excitement! I recently returned from a holiday cruise and loved all the beautiful decor, special events and activities and seeing my favorite Disney Characters in their adorable festive attire. Be sure to keep your daily cruise newsletter, the Personal Navigator and the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app handy so you don't miss out on any of the fun. I hope the festive atmosphere and magical Disney touches will make this a holiday to remember for your family. 

    There will be so much to enjoy on your voyage next week including a long list of Port Adventures. Venturing ashore is a wonderful way to experience all the Caribbean islands have to offer, and Disney Cruise Line has some great adventures for Guests of all ages. Since your cruise is so close and you are traveling with a large group, I definitely suggest stopping by the Port Adventures Desk once you are aboard for some recommendations. They will be able to advise you on the best excursions for your group size and ages and will be able to check availability. 

    Louise, I hope you have the most magical time aboard the Disney Fantasy!

    Bon Voyage!
